Astros purchase contract of Lee Cruz

We interrupt this draft coverage to report the Astros have purchased the contract of the Yuma Scorpions' (indpendent Golden League) Lee Cruz.

Cruz, who leads the Golden Baseball League with an average of .433 was originally drafted by the Chicago White Sox organization and signed with Yuma a month ago. In just 17 games under field manager Darryl Brinkley the right handed hitting Cruz has hit three home runs, three triples and five doubles. He is also second in the GBL in RBI to teammate Timothy Rodriquez with 26.

Cruz will report to Lancaster.
